Are you throwing away a small fortune ?
It is a fact of life that we are living in uncertain times and this applies also to the antiques and collectable's markets. What was a surefire seller 5 years ago hardly attracts any interest these days. Look at the sad decline of Royal Doulton Modern Lady Figures (of course vintage Royal Doulton figures are still attracting considerable interest), they may have been £80 to £100 at one stage but in an auction scenario they may only realize £20-£30 at present. It is apparent however that there is still a vibrant market in areas such as coins, stamps, medals, fountain , postcards etc and items that have obvious quality or have a certain mystique attached to them.
What is apparent is that fresh goods to the market place attract a lot of interest.
If you are thinking of moving house or are clearing the effects of a relative then feel free to ask for expert advice on how to dispose of the goods. It is a fact that often the most commercially viable items in a residence are taken to the local refuse centre or placed in skips. Items as innocent as postcards and ephemera can be worth substantial sums and often have more appeal often than large pieces of furniture.
The advice is do not throw out anything, you may be giving away a small fortune ask Huntly Auctions to give you a free appraisal.
